Unfortunately, it's very difficult to tell.  They don't allow scripts on here, so we don't have access to google analytics.  But, you do have the option to add a short code and then share those on social media.  Then, you can see how many come from there (but you can't tell twitter vs FB vs g+, etc.)

Pull a short URL, post to your Facebook page. This does not solve your problem with originating views for AR, but you can see where people view your Facebook page from and you'll know that they're clicking through to your blog from there. There's also the distinct possibility that it's too late in the day for anything I just said to make sense. 😇

Well, the only way I know to be able to tell is to use the short code url and after posting to each social media site, watch the number of 'short url click' under STATS.

Short url clicks

You can't do it from AR.   Use the work-arounds suggested by Debbie Gartner and Debbie Reynolds and  Candice A. Donofrio  et al.

If you take a short url and post on various sites you will be able to see how many views you have had as the result of people clicking through the short url. It will not tell you exactly which site it came from. As far as I know there are no analytic tools available to us to track that.

Debbie Gartner has a great answer for you - create the short url to blast off into social media land, and you'll be able to at least track what comes from the short url VS what's organic or ActiveRain based

You cannot do it directly from AR.  Others have made suggestions for sharing on social media ... that is the best any one can do.
